net: reserve ports for applications using fixed port numbers
(Dropped the infiniband part, because Tetsuo modified the related code, I will send a separate patch for it once this is accepted.) This patch introduces /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_reserved_ports which allows users to reserve ports for third-party applications. The reserved ports will not be used by automatic port assignments (e.g. when calling connect() or bind() with port number 0). Explicit port allocation behavior is unchanged.
